Does anyone know why Wordpress would be crashing Firefox?  I have a site that keeps crashing.  If you visit and click refresh or try to use Firebug, it should crash Firefox.

Any ideas?

I guarantee you that Wordpress is not crashing Firefox.  Something in your code may be crashing firefox; probably something you added in directly or by including some third part file.

However without a link to the page it is not likely that we are going to be able to help much.

Your scripting is absolute junk:

How can this possible be right:

<script>
      jQuery(document).ready(function(){
      jQuery('ul#menu-top-menu li:not(:last)').after('<li class="menu-divider">.</li>');
     });
</script>
<script>
      jQuery(document).ready(function(){
      jQuery('ul#menu-client-menu li:not(:last)').after('<li class="menu-divider">.</li>');
     });
</script>
<script>
      jQuery(document).ready(function(){
      jQuery('ul#menu-bottom-menu li:not(:last)').after('<li class="menu-divider">.</li>');
     });
</script>

The same script 3 times in a row?  The rest of it is just bloated trash. There is no way you need that much crap to produce such a simple and basic page.  Web development is engineering not art.

Thank you so much for your straight forward and verbose critique of the coding.  However you failed to answer the question or offer any sort of meaningful insight.

Do you have any suggestions for someone seeking advice and help?

Thank you for your help.  I have discovered that it is two WP Plugins conflicting with each other and unfortunately it only happens in FF.  I had to not use one of the plugins on the homepage.
